Data type




Version 5.0 of the MPE operating system supports two naming systems for file names:

· Traditional MPE file names. File names must be all uppercase, no longer than eight characters, and must conform to the FILENAME.GROUP.ACCOUNT folder structure format.

· Version 5.0 POSIX file names. File names can be mixed case and of any length, using a fully hierarchical folder structure.

MPE file names are a subset of POSIX names. All MPE file names are visible from within POSIX (for example, PCLINK2.PUB.SYS appears as /SYS/PUB/PCLINK2), but only POSIX files with names that are also valid as MPE file names are visible from MPE.

Use this property to return (first syntax line) or specify (second syntax line) which naming convention Reflection is to use. This file name structure is used for host file names during file transfers, and it also determines how the file names appear in the File Transfer dialog box if you choose the Show Host Files button. When WRQMPEFilenames is set to rcMPE, files beginning with a period or a forward slash (. or /) are interpreted as POSIX files.

This property is only relevant for transfers to HP 3000 hosts (that is, when WRQHostSystem is set to rcHP3000).

This property is relevant only for transfers that use the WRQ/Reflection protocol.


The default value is rcMPE.

rcAuto The host program determines which naming system to use.

rcMPE Reflection uses traditional MPE file names, unless a name begins with a forward slash or a period, in which case the name is assumed to be a POSIX name.

rcPOSIX Reflection uses POSIX file names.

rcMPEOnly Reflection uses traditional MPE file names, reporting any file name beginning with a forward slash or a period as invalid.
